As a child she wanted to be a witch or Emma Watson – because she’s talented, pretty and clever and she got to act Hermione who’s a great character and a great witch.

Since she was 8, she practise circus as an amateur. After graduation form high school, she got in SaSak Circus Artist Education – professional circus schol in Lahti, Finland.

She likes in contemporary circus that it is so many sided: it combines and brings together so many different fields of art and it’s never predictable or the same. It lets to immerse yourself in different feelings and emotions, it can give you so much, both as a performer and as an audience member.

During her free time she loves knitting, especially socks, and she does that a lot. She also like chill evenings at home, with people she loves, and some chocolate.
